Lawyer – Disputes and Investigations (Regulatory Investigations)

We currently have exciting opportunities for bright, personable and enthusiastic lawyers to join our elite Regulatory Investigations team, which is part of our market-leading Disputes and Investigations practice.

Our Disputes and Investigations practice is comprised of lawyers who act in many of the most significant disputes, corporate crises and investigations in the Irish market. Within that wider group, our Regulatory Investigations lawyers have specialist experience in advising financial institutions on enforcement investigations, related litigation and the management of regulatory risk. As part of this team you will work closely with market-leading experts in helping financial services clients navigate business-critical regulatory issues and disputes.

Regulatory enforcement is a fast-growing and dynamic area of legal practice. As a member of our Regulatory Investigations team you will draw on a varied skill-set to provide our financial services clients with excellent legal support and innovative solutions across a range of contentious engagements. You will develop your skills as a litigation / investigations lawyer while working closely with colleagues in our Financial Regulatory Group to provide a market-leading 'joined up' approach to advising on regulatory risks, supervisory engagements, enforcement and associated litigation. The structure of our practice also means that you will have the opportunity to work with other lawyers in our wider Disputes and Investigations Group on a range of disputes and investigations by other regulators such as the Data Protection Commissioner and CCPC and white collar crime mandates.

We would like to hear from any interested solicitors, whether practicing locally or considering returning to Ireland, with experience/interest gained in some or all of the following areas:
